Mo'Nique

Dog Crap Lawsuit's Ruining

My Oscar-Winning Reputation

4/7/2012 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0406_monique_01
"Precious" star Mo'Nique is completely humiliated by the sordid accusations that have surfaced in her landlord lawsuit -- dog feces, weed, illegal immigrants -- and now, she wants the entire lawsuit sealed from the prying eyes of the public.

Mo filed legal docs in the case last week -- claiming she's an "Oscar-winning actress, television host, and otherwise public figure" ... and the bitter lawsuit's crushing her good rep.

TMZ broke the story -- a nasty legal battle has been raging between Mo and her landlords since last year, after she and her husband Sidney Hicks walked out on their rental contract ... because the house allegedly smells like dog poop and urine. But then it got personal.

The landlords fired back with their own legal docs last month, including several emails in which Mo's hubby Sidney accuses them of being alcoholics and using illegal workers. The landlords accuse Sidney of smoking weed in the house.

Now, Mo says the lawsuit has become a massive embarrassment -- and her landlords are capitalizing on the national media attention by throwing fuel on the humiliating fire.

Mo insists the personal email exchanges filed by her landlords had NOTHING to do with the case -- and will only serve to “unnecessarily harass, embarrass, and cause public ridicule if the record is not sealed."

Mo'Nique says leaving the case open constitutes a violation of her privacy -- and the judge must have agreeed ... because until further notice, the case has been sealed.

If she has such a solid reputation and so far above us average joes, she should have taken some of that Oscar winnings and BOUGHT her own house, that way she could have as much dog poop and weed as she pleased.

If the house didn't smell that way when she signed the lease then one can only assume that she brought the stank with her when she moved in...besides shouldn't the house smell like bacon after that pig lived in it?

Solution: BUY a house with mortgage payments no more than your rent. Then...no landlords.

We purchased a home that Mo'nique had rented and we found a sandwich bag full of weed not to mention some other "interesting" things. Whatever, people smoke weed, but don't LIE about it. Also, shouldn't an Oscar winner be able to afford to buy their OWN HOUSE?!? Red Flags Abound with this woman!!!

Mo'nique can dish it out, but not take it - she can make accusations about the landlord, but when the landlord defends himself she wants the case sealed. I hope the landlord wins.
